Figure 1.--We have noted a portrait by Jacob Gerritsz Cuyp, "Portrait of a Boy with red-lined Straw Hat". It was an oil on panel. I'm not sure precisely when it was painted.
The Cuyp family was from Dordrecht and included three artists of some distinction. Jacob's father was a glass painter who had studied under Abraham Bloemaert at Utrecht. His best known works are portraits and he did some especially notable portraits of children, providing great deatail on their clothing. We have noted a portrait by Jacob Gerritsz Cuyp, "Portrait of a Boy with red-lined Straw Hat". It was an oil on panel. I'm not sure precisely when it was painted, but you would assume probably the 1630s or 40s. He is also known to have produced some important landscapes. Benjamin Gerritsz Cuyp (1612-52) was Jacob's half brother. Aelbert Cuyp (1620-91) is the most noted artist in th Cuyp family. He was Jacob's son.
